Bright golden yellow colour on the body, only a bit cloudy, with a small white head on top, with good density and average retention. Pretty weak aroma of pink grapefruit, wet leather, minerals, unripe plum, grass, hint of caramel, green apple, jute and white pepper. Crisp fruity taste but a bit subdued, light on the tongue with medium carbo, smooth, apple peel and peach accents, grainy, bit sourish but very softly so, leathery Brett touch in the finish but gentle, dryish finish, bit yeasty with some grassy hop bitterishness. Would be interesting to cellar for a year and see how it develops.

This beer is one the hardest genuine Trappist beers to find!
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a thick biege head. Aroma is a bit sweet with fruit and caramel. Really nice full and chewy mouthfeel. Raisins, brown sugar, dark fruits, alcohol, and caramel are right upfront. Nice lingering aftertaste. There’s a lot to sink your teeth into, so to speak. A really complex beer that wants you to ask for more.
